  1. This question has come up a few times so I I am sharing some info I got from Celemony. This primarily applies to SONAR users who are now using Cakewalk by BandLab. As part of SONAR Platinum users got a license of Melodyne 4 Essential. (If you are a new Cakewalk by BandLab user you are offered the trial version of Melodyne) Melodyne 5 has many advantages over Melodyne 4, including ARA 2 integration and workflow improvements. As far as Melodyne 5 Essential goes the biggest advantage is that unlike version 4, it supports polyphonic pitch to MIDI out of the box. In version 4 you had to purchase Melodyne Editor to get this. To get your free Melodyne essential update to Melodyne version 5. a. Login to your Celemony user account and find Melodyne 4 Essential b. Click License Options c. Click the Download button for your free update. d. Install Melodyne That should be it. If you have any issues transferring your license contact Celemony support.
  2. Hey all, Not sure if this is the best place to put this, but what the hey: I have an unmanageably large library of instruments on a powerful computer that’s impossible to bring portably. If it’s not a feature yet, I’d like to request a feature and/or app that would allow my, say, laptop or even iPad, to the extent it can, be able to load projects in cakewalk remotely over the internet and use the resources of the stationary desktop to help with rendering audio FX, VSTi’s, MIDI, and audio data. In the mean time, What’s the best way to work on Cakewalk remotely? Codefreq
  3. Are you still on the fence about making the switch from Cakewalk Sonar to Cakewalk by BandLab? This video should help!
  4. [Some users have helped me with this issue in a different Topic, but I thought it deserved its own thread here.] While using WASAPI, there's no audio playback although the Track meters are moving. Previously, I've used MME and ASIO4ALL flawlessly. I've tried the following: Experimented in Sonar, CbB, and Studio One v4 (but no WASAPI option there) Switched between WASAPI "Exclusive" and "Shared" Confirmed the sample rate is 24-bit 48K in both Sound Settings and in Sonar/Cakewalk Checked/unchecked "Suspend Audio Engine..." in [Audio --> Playback and Recording] Disabled/re-enabled the Audio Engine button and exited/restarted the program Confirmed each Instrument Track is output to Master Bus, and the Master Bus is output to RealTek As you can see, I've tried everything short of reformatting my hard drive and starting all over. What else is there? I've learned that WASAPI is the suggested Driver Mode for my onboard audio configuration. I'm still in the amateur stages of my music projects, so I don't want to rush into buying an audio interface (yet) just to use ASIO4ALL. ** Screenshots of my Windows Sound and CbB Preferences are attached. Any help towards a resolution would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
  5. Okay, I live in a bubble. Had not even heard about Bandlab Cakewalk until Celemony told me they don’t even test Melodyne with SONAR Platinum any more. I’ve just been happily using SONAR Platinum with infinite updates. I’ve been a Cakewalk user for almost 3 decades, and always kept up with every upgrade, so this is a little odd. But all that aside, now I need to know whether switching to Bandlab is the right thing to . I understand it’s FREE? That seems insane, and automatically makes me a little leery. I’ve always believed you get what you pay for. Furthermore, I’ve seen hints out there (since my antenna are now activated) that perhaps switching to Bandlab Cakewalk is not necessarily a positive move. So I’d like to hear from those who’ve made the move. Recommended or not? Also, one small issue is that one of my two Platinum installations is on a machine that can only be connected to the Internet with great difficulty. Does that figure in? Thanks for your input.
  6. Hello, i am a new user of Cakewalk and i like it, but there is one thing that bothers me a little, maybe i am not alone in this case. when i play or record something, i noticed that the time counter and the playhead cursor are not smooth but jerky, is there something to modify in the preferences to get them smooth? In preferences, i tried ASIO, WASAPI and MME but nothing changed. Here is my PC configuration: CPU : Intel Core i7-6700K MEMORY : 32 GB SOUNDCARD : Realtek High Definition Audio Thank you for your help
  7. Hey there! Relatively new user/audio engineer here. First time post. So I just recently did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro, and, for no obvious reason, Cakewalk appears to no longer function... basically at all. So, the issue is, every three seconds or less, no matter what I do, if I click something in the program or not, the entire program freezes up and stops responding. Even going back and trying to install and use the old Cakewalk "SONAR Platinum" through the Cakewalk Command Center yields the same results. Exactly the same. Freezing up every 2 or 3 seconds. Does anybody have any idea what is going on? Is it a glitch in a new update of Windows or Cakewalk? I just feel like I'm the only one with this problem! And I've never had this issue before, even with my current PC build! This literally has just started happening since my recent fresh Windows install! I haven't changed any hardware at all. CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16-Core Processor 3.40 GHz GPU: nVidia GeForce 1080 Founder's Edition MOBO: ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha SSD installed copy of Windows 10 Pro Interface: Steinberg UR824, running the latest Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver, output to power conditioner & Focal Alpha studio monitors
  8. HI there, I installed CW Sonar Platinum on my laptop and tried connecting it to my Genos via USA cable. I've already installed the Yamaha USB Midi driver and Genos instrument file. When I connect CW to my Genos, the Genos becomes unresponsive. When I press keys... nada. No sound, nothing. Same with all other controls. I'm stumped. Any ideas what is causing this? Thanks.
  9. Hello, Edit: 23 March 2019 I decided it could be helpful to include a list of upcoming tutorial videos and their links. The video below is the first video in the playlist, but if you are interested in a specific topic, check the following list for quick navigation. If there is no link for it yet, it means I haven't uploaded it. I can take requests, but keep in mind that I run another business on top of my actual Chernobyl Studios audio work, so if I like the idea, it'll get put on the list and I'll get to it when I get to it.

I have a channel on YouTube that I created many years ago for creating Cakewalk SONAR Platinum tutorials. I constantly get questions, comments, and requests on those old videos I did years ago. I'm updating all of the Cakewalk videos I did for SONAR Platinum to Cakewalk by Bandlab. There are three videos currently online, with 4 more already scheduled to come out this week. Please share this playlist with anybody who is getting started with Cakewalk by Bandlab. I am starting from the very basics and will work all the way through mixing an entire song. It will take a few weeks, but it will be worth it. 😎
  10. Got the following issue; i want to use the synths in kontakt as multitracks and i am not able to get Kontakt to respond on anything but midi channel 1. I want to have say an oboe on midi channel 1 and a clarinett on midi channel 2. Midi channel 1 is working fine, but as soon as i try using channel 2 or higher, nogo. Guess there is something im missing in setting the whole thing up? Or are there any known bugs with sonar & kontakt?
  11. I have a Presonus Digimax FS going into an RME Frireface 800 using ADAT and it will not record in Cakewalk. I set it to the correct ADAT in Cakewalk and same input in Windows 10 settings. The mic test in Windows shows the mic working but it will not record in Cakewalk by BL or in Sonar Platinum. I can record using the analog inputs just fine. I am attaching a screenshot. I am using ADAT 4 (ADAT3 right) and when I select the analog it records just fine but ADAT shows no levels in the meter.
  12. I bought the thoman studio starterkit 2014.31.10. It included Sonar X3 LE which had some good VSTs i want to use (even its not the updated version). Because I had to set up my PC new, Cakewalk Sonar x3 LE was deleted from my PC and i lost my serial key for it. I wanted to verify it again, but I can't find the product key and cant access my account because I didn't visit the account before 2014 and the registration is disabled now. there is also no email support. what can I do? im hobby musician and student so i rly dont have the money to buy the VSTs as standalone... besides... I already bought it.... i rly would love to have some support contact... thank you for your help! Max
  13. Hi everyone, I'm a new user here, just recently downloading Cakewalk by Bandlab for a windows install on a new SSD. I have been using Sonar Professional for a while now, with Rapture Session installed. According to documentation I found, it seems that this software is still supported so long as it is installed on the same system. I have been trying to re-download this software on the Cakewalk site, but I no longer remember my password there, and I'm not receiving the password reset email when i click the link, either. Does anyone know of a way to still get support for this account, or otherwise re-download the software? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  14. I've been a Cakewalk user for 20+ years, and I am so excited that it continues to live on. I was on SPLat, and didn't want to make the jump until Bandlab picked up the franchise. While doing this I noticed a cool feature a fried used in Studio One to test out arrangements and easily rearrange sections in the song. I'd like to see something similar to this. I do a lot R&B/Pop music, and this would make it a lot more easier to move groups of tracks within sections around to experiment with different arrangements. They call them The Arranger and Scratchpad in Studio One. This would be an awesome and helpful feature to add. Instead of grabbing individual tracks, you can could select a bar which represented that section and grab all the tracks as a group and place them in different parts of the song (in time). Hope this finds your eyes and ears well!! I Love Cakewalk!!!

    Old Sonar "XL Pack" CD

    I came across two CDs in perfect condition while cleaning out my garage. 1) The Sonar Home Studio installation disc. 2) An XL Pack that includes all the stuff listed in my tags to this post. This XL Pack was included with the Sonar Home Studio installation disc. The first CD installation disc is unneeded, correct, because I am using the free downloaded Cakewalk by Bandlab? I'd like to know then how to utilize the Sonar XL Pack.......... with Cakewalk by Bandlab. (The XL Pack add-ons are not included in the free Bandlab Cakewalk, correct?) I bought a DVD writer to upload the XL Pack CD to my computer, but have not hooked up the DVD writer yet. Thanks, Bob
  16. Was browsing through this forum, expecting to find a place you could report bugs in the Cakewalk software. But could not find anything. How do you report errors in the software?
  17. So, what an interesting surprise it has been, coming back and catching up on the Cakewalk news of the last 3 years after taking a long break from any sound and music production. I invested a lot on STEAM with Sonar, its upgrades, sample libraries and some plugins. When I originally saw that Cakewalk was acquired and that Sonar was being killed off, I basically came to terms and tried my best to forget about my investments and I have since distanced myself from any form of audio production, until now. Slowly getting back into this world and trying to piece back together the pieces... I was quite amazed to realize that Sonar Platinum has now basically been released for free with support. This excited me and I immediately started researching how to get my other Sonar Platinum related purchases on STEAM working with Cakewalk by Bandlab, but it feels messy and it might have been false hope... First off, I tried re-installing Sonar Platinum with a Lifetime pass on STEAM, but it requests my email address which is then rejected with this error message: At this point I discovered Cakewalk by Bandlab and how to install it. At first, I was satisfied with my loss with this replacement, but what about all of the plugins etc. ? I read on other forums that Cakewalk by Bandlab should easily discover and utilize your previous Sonar Platinum plugins, but it seems like it would only if you never uninstalled Steam Platinum after it died. I have not tried installing all of my purchases yet, but these are the issues I have encountered so far; CA-2A Leveling Amplifier: Rapture Session & Pro: Has anyone else here successfully migrated from STEAM with full use of their previous purchases? Should I give up, or is there a way to continue where I left off? Thanks for reading, I hope someone can have some useful feedback.
  18. Hi everyone, I just wanted to post this and make you aware of my YouTube channel that offers extensive tutorials on what was then called Sonar. These tutorials will still be useful to those of you using the newly labelled Cakewalk by BandLab software. I am adding more in depth tutorials very soon specifically on the free software of Cakewalk so please subscribe and let me know of any future tutorials you would like to see. In the meantime please follow the link below to the channel and give me some feedback MAKING CREATIVITY INSPIRE Thanks everyone!
  19. Hey, I’ve finally bought a Mac. But the product I have previously purchased on Cakewalk is Sonar X1 LE which I purchased for a PC is it possible to obtain the Mac version of the download to install on my Mac? I downloaded the link in my products page - but upon installation it said it was windows only. I only have this installed on one computer - and the license is for two. But is there a way to get the Mac version?
  20. Do I need an internet connection, once I've downloaded and updated Cakewalk by Bandlab? right now I have Sonar Artist installed, but I'm curious about BandLab. I Only use Sonar with No Plugins for live use. Mainly for the Song list Feature and opening different projects for live use. I would like to use it without an internet connection. Thank you in advance! micdim
  21. Hello ! it will be more than 8 months since I have a valid license key for Sonar Home Studio and Cakewalk Rapture Session that I still can not use. I have a non active Cakewalk account and I was wondering if there would be a way to solve it. because I'd love to use Rapture Session
  22. Midi keyboard-controller (KORG microKEY-61) does not work I'm currently making decision for my new DAW; I have installed Cakewalk and would like to buy Sonar Professional. when I load a softwaresynthesizer, it can not be played by keyboard. Voreinstellungen - MIDI - Geräte: microKEY-61 1 KEYBOARD and microKEY-61 1 CTRL are shown both as active (see uploaded image) curious: KORG microKEY-61 works without problems using the following DAWs: - MAGIX Samplitude Music Studio 2010 - Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio (demo) - Reaper (demo) so it should not be a MIDI-config problem of Windows 7 any help is highly appreciated best regards Peter
  23. Don't know what I did, but whenever I expand a track now I don't have all the info (volume, pan, patch etc) that was there prior. How do I get this back?
  24. Can I use Cakewalk to work on my songs that were created in Sonar Platinum?

    Sonar crashing in Windows 10

    Just the last few days Sonar has been crashing with various messages - "not enough disk space" (I have over a terabyte available), "there are no audio devices for the current driver model on your system" (gee, it was working 5 minutes ago with my Apollo 8 thunderbolt), also a lot of "corrupt audio region" and "silent busses", none of which I can account for with simple guitar and vocal tracks. Could this all be something to do with the July Windows updates or is BandLab just insisting I install the newest update?
